Unpopular opinion: I never cared for John Oliver’s recurring bit about how everything was “rock bottom,” and each and every day in Trump’s America was some new under-layer of rock bottom. I didn’t like that bit because I have always felt a sense of dread and impending doom, and I’ve always known in my heart: there is no bottom. There is nothing keeping us from free-fall in this petty dictatorship. America’s leaders are either senile, crazy, complicit, treasonous or all of the above. American policy right now is to rip babies from the arms of their mothers. American policy right now is to put small children in cages and mock them for crying for their parents.
Meanwhile, Homeland Security Chief Kirstjen Nielsen spent the past three days lying her ass off about Trump’s policy of throwing children into cages in concentration camps on American soil. Nielsen first lied this weekend when she tweeted: “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.” Then 24 hours later, suddenly it was a policy or a law or something, but goddamn if she knows but she will enforce it with vigor. Then on Monday this f–king a–hole gave a press conference that was full of lies and bullsh-t. She said the footage of children being kept in cages were nothing more than “hearsay stories” and that separating more than 2000 children from their parents is not a “policy,” because these idiots love semantic arguments more than they love white supremacy. She also repeatedly called all immigrants “criminals,” because I guess this bitch doesn’t realize that A) it’s not against the law to seek asylum and B) CHILD ABUSE IS A CRIME TOO. I’m not even going to put the video here, because if I have to listen to her voice one more time, I am going to physically harm someone.
For what it’s worth, Senator Kamala Harris is trying to get Nazi Barbie fired.
I’m calling on Kirstjen Nielsen to resign as Secretary of Homeland Security. Under her watch, our government has committed human rights abuses by breaking up families along the southern border. And she has failed to be accountable to and transparent with the American people.

And in case it wasn’t clear enough, the GOP is more than happy to toss out a few blonde white women to be the faces of Trump’s policy. Donald Trump is a coward, Paul Ryan is a coward, John Kelly is a coward. Mitch McConnell is a coward. They’re all too f–king chicken sh-t to put their faces to the policy that puts babies in cages. And then they’ll send Ann Coulter out there to further stir up the crazies:

Yes, on the right-wing propaganda channel which Donald Trump mainlines like crack cocaine, Ann Coulter looked into the camera and said that weeping children were “child actors.” There is no bottom. And we’re in free fall.
